Details

Audience: GPs (all grades)

Nearly 41,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer every year in the UK. At least 10,721 men die every year from prostate cancer in the UK. Approximately 112 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer every day in the UK. 255,000 men are living with and after prostate cancer in the UK. So how do we diagnose it early with PSA testing? What is the optimal approach? How do we determine the accuracy of our tests (especially if they are invasive or have side effects). Approximately 40% of prostate cancers in England are diagnosed at a late stage (III or IV).

We will cover what the patient wants to know:

  • Do I have prostate cancer?
  • Detailed information about the disease (clinical stage)
  • Prognosis?
  • Optimal treatment?
  • Pros & cons of options
  • Balance of risks?
  • What are the outcomes?
